History

Diplomatic relations between India and Mauritius were established in 1948, soon after India’s independence.

Shri Dharam Yash Dev was appointed as the first Commissioner in September 1948 who remained in office till June 1950. There were 8 Commissioners in all. The last Commissioner was Shri Avtar Singh who held office from May 1967 till March 1968. 

Following Mauritius’ independence in March 1968, the representation was upgraded to High Commission. Shri Avtar Singh became the first High Commissioner of India to Mauritius. Since then there have been 15 High Commissioners. The present High Commissioner Shri T.P. Seetharam is India’s 16th High Commissioner to Mauritius. 

Available records at the High Commission suggest that the High Commission was first housed adjacent to Champs de Mars. It moved to Bank of Baroda Building afterwards. Since 1993, the High Commission is located in the LIC Building, President John Kennedy Street. This is a prominent landmark in Port Louis designed by the renowned architect Charles Correa. 

The construction of a new Chancery building of the High Commission in the business-hub of Mauritius, the Ebene Cyber City is expected to begin in the near future.
